I noticed it in february, and wrote a patch which allowed it to at least compile,
link and load properly, but I couldn't check if it worked, not having the hardware.
Someone told be that the driver was borken anyway and that even with my patch it
was unusable, so I gave up and simply disabled it in my .config.

I simply removed comx_delete_dentry() and comx_lookup(), and assigned
comx_root_inode_ops.lookup from comx_root_dir->proc_iops->lookup in comx_init().

Better luck with CONFIG_COMX=n IMHO.
